Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei
(Worthy News)-- Iran's supreme leader has apparently rejected key provisions of a framework agreement reached in April between his negotiators and those of six world powers, the Jerusalem Post reported.
The rebuke, in a speech delivered live on Iranian television on Tuesday, specifically rejected limits on Tehran's research and development into nuclear technology that would last a decade or more.
According to parameters of the framework reached in Lausanne, Switzerland, released at the time by the White House, Iran at the time agreed to "limit domestic enrichment capacity and research and development... for ten years."
But "freezing Iran's research and development (R&D) for a long time like 10 or 12 years is not acceptable," Ayatollah Ali Khamenei stated on Tuesday. --Source
